Abandoned by her lover Anatol, Vanessa retreats from the world, waiting and hoping with only her mother and her niece Erika for company. But when, 20 years later, Anatol`s handsome young son arrives unexpectedly, he shatters the calm of this shuttered household of women.

Past and present love collides, and the aftershocks threaten to destroy them all. Samuel Barber`s Pulitzer Prize-winning first opera boasts one of the 20th century`s most beautiful scores. Poised constantly on the edge of song, Vanessa unfolds in generous swathes of melody, rich in filmic strings and soaring brass, with echoes of Puccini, Berg and Strauss. It climaxes in a final quintet of Mozartean poignancy - one of the great ensembles of the contemporary repertoire.
